5.0 out of 5 stars Now This Is Country, October 28, 2012
This review is from: Living For A Song: A Tribute To Hank Cochran (Audio CD)
Hank Cochran is one of the finest songwriters the country genre has ever known, there is no doubt about that. This album from Jamey Johnson is a tribute in the purest sense of the word and should be listened to by anyone who appreciates true country music. As a matter of fact, if anyone wants to know exactly WHAT pure country music is they should listen to this album. This is the kind of country I heard growing up when my dad would play albums from Waylon, Willie, Kris, Merle and so on. The fact that we get to hear Willie, Kris and Merle here is just a bonus as Jamey Johnson has as pure a country voice as there is.

When I turn on country radio these days I have to wonder just how we got so far away from music like this so fast. I'm not saying there isn't some good music still being made, but it's now a rarity to find someone making an album like this that is cut from the old school country music cloth. I found myself smiling as every new track came out of my speakers as I remembered just how good a steel guitar and a raspy voice could sound.

The bottom line on this one is buy it, it's a perfect tribute to one of the greatest songwriters around and it's a perfect primer for anyone who thinks country music is what they're playing on the radio today. Thank you Jamey Johnson for keeping the flame alive!
